"I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly." John 10:10
Our worship is rooted in the bible and the sacraments, full of the rich colour and symbolism of two millennia of Christian tradition, but in a modern style. "Something old and something new...",Matthew 13:52. Every Sunday morning at 10.30am we meet to share in Holy Communion as Jesus commanded us (Mark 14:22-25;1 Corinthians11:23-26). Worship lasts for approximately one hour. We use rich diversity of musical styles including World Church, contemporary worship songs, modern Catholic, traditional hymns, Iona and Taizé supported by our music gifted music group.
Holy Trinity is a diverse church of people of many ages, backgrounds and nationalities. We seek to be an accessible church. Worshipers include people with learning difficulties and people living with dementia. The building is wheelchair accessible throughout, and a disabled toilet and hearing loop system is available.
Babies and small children are welcome. We are a breastfeeding friendly Church and baby changing facilities are available. A glazed side chapel to which sound is relayed is available for those with small children if they become unsettled.
We have many years of experience of welcoming and supporting asylum seekers who are placed in the community. Though worship is principally in English, we try to mirror the diversity of our congregation in our worship through song and prayer and the provision of Bibles and other teaching materials.
“What’s great about Trinity, is that there are people of all ages on a Sunday”
Christ has died, Christ is risen, Christ will come again
The Seasonal Cycle of Worship
The Christian year is marked by two great events, the incarnation and Christ's death and resurrection celebrated at Christmas and Easter.
The annual cycle of our worship begins on Advent Sunday, a time when we not only prepare for Christmas but also remember that Jesus will come again. At Christmas we remember Jesus, the Son of God, being born a human baby at Bethlehem. Christmas is followed by Epiphany during which re recall the signs that would reveal who Jesus was.
On Ash Wednesday we begin Lent, a time when through fasting, prayer and acts of service, Christians prepare for the great feast
of Easter. Holy Week begins with the celebration of Palm Sunday when the church remembers Jesus' entry into Jerusalem on
The high point of the Christian year is Easter, over the three days (the Triduum), from Maundy Thursday to Easter Sunday, we remember Jesus' death and resurrection. We begin on Maundy Thursday evening as we remember the last supper and Jesus' command to love one another. On Good Friday afternoon we gather around the cross as we tell the story of Jesus's death and pray for all those suffering in the world today. As the sun sets on Easter Eve a new fire is lit and the great Easter Vigil of light begins. In the midst of the night we read the great story of God's creation and re-creation in word and song finishing with the first Eucharist of Easter. On Easter Sunday morning as the sun is risen we continue the great celebration which continues for the fifty days of Easter, including the great feast of the Ascension and finishing at the Feast of Pentecost.
